* Around the time that Mel C, formerly of the Music/SpiceGirls, put her first solo album out, her stylists started putting her in some very soft-butch clothing for record art and press photoshoots, and even threw in some rather LesYay-loaded poses with female models. This naturally led to an awful lot of prurient tabloid speculation, which made a definite contribution to her unhappy mental state at the time.

* ''{{Bobwhite}}''. Marlene does a brief internship with Jen, a director who's a big deal in the independent film circuit. They're a great match on the set. [[http://www.bobwhitecomics.com/?webcomic_post=20110203 Then Jen gives Marlene a big kiss]], only to realizes seconds later that Marlene didn't like her ''that'' way. (The real {{irony}} is that Marlene took this internship in the first place to get ''away'' from relationship drama.)

* ''Series/TheHandmaidsTale'': Fred finds out that June had a past with Moira, and arranges for them to meet in Jezebel's when he visits again, thinking they were lesbian lovers. June corrects this, though, and Fred then lets them have some time together anyway (he seems oddly okay with the idea they were lovers in the past, despite echoing the usual anti-gay stance of the regime by calling Moira "degenerate").

* Meta example: ''UndocumentedFeatures'' was written over many long nights where the three authors would go up to their room and plot, and their classmates thought they were gay (or at least bisexual) because who writes fiction on a Friday night?

** Natani [[spoiler: is actually two people sharing two bodies as part of a medical procedure to keep them alive, one male and one female.]] So whether it's really a 'mistake' or not is something the characters themselves aren't sure of because [[spoiler: no one has a word or customs for defining the gender of a binary being]], though they're usually offended anyway, on principle.
